At Manchester United, the situation is getting worse. Because on Saturday the “Red Devils” embarrassed themselves against a newcomer. The gap above is widening.
Ole Gunner Soulscare had to fear for his job more than ever before at Manchester United after a violent bankruptcy. The team around Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo embarrassed themselves when they were 1: 4 (0: 2) high at Watford FC on Saturday. This is the fifth defeat for the Red Devils from their last seven Premier League games.
Joshua King (28th minute), Ismail Sir (44th), Joao Pedro (90th + 2) and Emmanuel Dennis (90th + 6) scored for Watford after Sir failed twice on the penalty spot. United keeper De Kia broke Sarin’s first weak penalty before Kiko Femonia hit the margin. The goal did not count as Femonia quickly entered the box. So the penalty had to be made again, but Di Jia saved Sar’s second attempt as well.
Manchester’s regression is growing
Substitute Tony van de Peek, who has played only three short games in the Premier League this season, scored an interim goal in the 50th minute. Shortly afterwards, Man United saw the next setback when defender Harry Maguire saw the yellow-red card after a mistake. Ronaldo (78th) did not score due to a goal offside.
This is the first personal success with the club for new Watford coach Claudio Ranieri. Man United have moved up to seventh in the table with just four points from their last seven league games (one win, one draw) since the renewed bankruptcy. The gap for leading runner FC Chelsea is already twelve points.
